Machete, an action movie that includes Lindsay Lohan playing a small part, hits theaters this weekend, opening on September 3 nationwide.
After a violent shakedown from a notorious drug lord nearly kills him, Machete, a renegade Mexican Federale and tough-as-nails vigilante for justice, roams the streets of Texas, working as a day laborer. When Machete is hired by a crooked US Senator to execute a covert hit, Machete is double-crossed and forced to run from the cops and an endless stream of assassins. But what they don’t know is that Machete is looking for them so he can settle the score.
The cast of Machete includes Robert De Niro, Danny Trejo, Jessica Alba, Michelle Rodriguez, Steven Seagal, Lindsay Lohan, Cheech Marin, Don Johnson and Jeff Fahey. This movie was directed by Robert Rodriguez and Ethan Maniquis.
Overall, the reviews for Machete were favorable.
“It’s a Hispanic American version of a blaxploitation film of the Super Fly school, with bloody action, titillating nudity and a catch-phrase riddled script.” -Roger Moore, Orlando Sentinel
“Robert Rodriguez returns to the grindhouse with this entertainingly over-the-top, ultraviolent exploitationer.” -Frank Scheck, Hollywood Reporter
“This unholy mess replaces the artful ambition of The American with torture, blood spray, kinky sex, twisted fun and a bizarro critique of U.S. policy on illegal immigration.” -Peter Travers, Rolling Stone

Machete is rated R for strong bloody violence throughout, language, some sexual content and nudity.
